Ponytails! Ponytails! Braids! For 2013 I am inspired by simplicity and the wearable look of hair. Our stylist at the Edris Salon can show how you how to achieve these looks. The new ways of wearing your pony tails are very very at low and the tails are wide. Braids are still in but they are more playful with added sass. Try something new! Change the way you part your hair, slick it back and tie a knot. What happens at the back head is as important as the front! Accessories are back as a statemenrt of the season! Use those gift cards to buy a new head band or put together a simple floral piece or it can be as simple as a sweet bow. In 2013 make a statement all of your own! Start the top and work your way down and remember we are here to help! Happy styling and peace – EDRIS
